LEONARDTOWN, MD– St. Mary’s County Economic Development (DED) is holding the next “Helping You Navigate Now” listening session Monday, Oct. 26, 2020. The series is designed to assist in recovery, reinvestment and workforce retention for local businesses – especially those hit hardest by the Covid-19 requirements.
